I et blomstersmykket kapell er en sørgerskare forsamlet til begravelse. Kai Skag, den vellykkede forretningsmannen, ble revet bort i sin beste alder, bare 54 år gammel. Han var enkemann og barnløs. Arven skal fordeles. Ryktet sier at alt er blitt etterlatt til landsforeningen mot kreft, men lettelsen brer seg i familien når testamente skal leses opp. De skal likevel arve, men på en betingelse: Forretningen - et lite skipsrederi - skal drive videre av en samlet familie. Hvis ikke bortfaller arven. Men ting blir ikke slike de tror. Written by Ørnås
